Through accreditation of its study programmes, the University is able to accept and teach students, and issue officially recognized degrees.

What is the purpose of accreditation?

The aim of accreditation is to ensure the highest quality of teaching, appropriate qualifications of teachers, etc. The process is supervised by the National Accreditation Bureau for Higher Education, which decides on accreditation of degree programmes. It can also issue a so-called institutional accreditation for specific areas of education. The University then decides on accreditation of its own study programmes and must, therefore, pay close attention to maintaining high-quality standards.

The quality of study programmes is supervised by the Council for Internal Evaluation, which has been operating at UWB since 2017 and is a prerequisite for UWB to apply for institutional accreditation in 2019.
